Wintry Mix

Gosh...this Winter is weird!  Yet again, we are seeing a wintry mix - sounds like a Christmas Jazz CD.  It appears very brief today and I'm snug and warm inside the shop, plugging away on updates to the website, store newsletter, blogging.  I was a bit surprised but we've had a number of people in today so far, go figure.  I updated our Facebook page with a quick re-order of Mardi Gras flags and that seemed to send people skating in thru the sleet.
Honestly, I have a local pick up option on the website but everyone forgets to take advantage of it; it was nice to see a slew of people in thru the door and to talk about the snow, I mean sleet.

Thru the mix of weather and people, I eventually get this pair of old birds.  Bless their hearts, they had everything vintage first hand, they knew someone that could make each handmade item, and everything else they just didn't need.  They promenaded thru like visiting royalty; this, usually a sign that they'll never buy.  One turns to me, and with a giggle, like how drole for you to open a store, and says "we must be your only customers today?!" 
Here are two Robins I snapped this morning while eating breakfast, to act out this shop moment. 

I was all like, oh please, don't flatter yourself, but shrugged her off and said it had been busy.  With no surprised they left within moments with a regal wave at the door, promising to return.  I won't hold my breath.  exhale. 

A couple new updates/re-stocks to our needlework supplies:
Back in stock are the iPhone 5 cross stitch kits in black and white; I carried red during the holidays and decided against it this go around.  I would like to add colors in the future that match the iPhone 5C, but it does not seem that they are out or not available to order...yet!
And newly in stock (though it is quite limited) are the opalescent handle Bohin Stork Embroidery Scissors.  They are just the bees knees.  I have a gold set and I'm really trying to convince myself that I need one of these too...the problem is they last forever, so do I really need another pair...yes, probably!
